Wait, I thought the Tolco Foaming Sprayer only sprays in a stream?
It does not give a fan of foam, but it gives off a large diameter stream of foam, ~2-4", depending on how hard you push the trigger. Better than a thin stream of liquid, and you will deff know were you sprayed it.
Yeah that's true. My foaming sprayer only sprays in like a thick stream, I guess that's part of what makes it a foamer. I think I am going to try some foaming sprayers next time I use Diablo.
I used it last night for the first time. I used it 1:1 and it cleaned well. I still prefer Grime Reaper for nasty tires, but it clung to the wheels like crazy! I just wish it sprayed in more of a fan pattern than the stream pattern. I sprayed it on, gave it a minute. Then I gently scrubbed with a brush mostly to just spread it around and let it sit some more. Then I went to town with the brush and the wheels were squeaky clean!
Yeah, Diablo doesn't seem to do much on tires. I think it's time to try the Gloss It Wheel Gel!
For tires I just use a APC, for me its MS Super Green Stuff, 3:1.
Grime Reaper 4:1 works fantastic for me!
OPC at 3:1 works well for tires.
Have used that a few times and it works great but dont have much left and I have gallon of SGS and can get it local.
My CG Wheel & Rim Citrus Cleaner came in the mail last week. I mixed up two bottles 2:1 and used it to clean the tires and it did a nice job.
I just ordered a 3-pack of Gloss It Wheel Gel. I'll have to give that a try as soon as I get it. I am like the wheel master....if there's a good wheel cleaner out there, I've either tried it, I have it on my shelf, or it's on my "To Try" list. Anyways, looking forward to the GI Wheel Gel. Rich @ GI told me to use it straight on heavy brake dust and to cut it 1:1 on less baked-on wheels. He also stated that it's great at cleaning brake calipers. I plan on trying it 1:1 first and seeing how that works out because I read a review on this site saying that 1:1 did a great job on some really hammered Volvo wheels.
I use 1z Blitz for tires/wells and megs WB for wheels. I do have like 4 or 5 other wheel cleaners in my arsenal though. just depends on what the wheels are like.
This sounds good!
It's all coming together :thumb:
Nica, how will we know when it's available for sale from you? I know you currently sell Tardis but I have no idea where to look or what to do in order to buy some from you. Where do we look to find these things out?
He has a tardis thread up in the forum specials section, see link below. Just send him a PM and you can buy a gallon from him. I am betting once he has it available there will be a very popular thread and you will not miss it.
Thank you sir!
Sorry a bit late but yes, once I have obtained Red P21S Gel I will start a new thread with all details and how you can get your hands on it as well.
I would go with the Diablo.... I just got a chance to use it on a really dirt set of BMW wheels and it is like magic in a bottle. Have never used P21s but after my first impression of the Diablo i dont think you could ever go wrong with it. Also they are having a 20% off on it when you use the code "DIABLO20". Dont know how long the discount will last
DIABLO20 expired on 9/30/09. At least that what it said when I tried to order with it earlier this month.
